The Muddy ‘Sip
The Muddy Sip’
The Mississippi River is the largest river of the United States. It has always been a part of my life living with a few miles from it. The most difficult question to answer about the River is .....What color is the Mississippi River?
It’s muddiness is of course most often associated with the most basic earth tone --brown.
But which brown? It depends on where the flow of the River is coming from whether it be the Missouri River, the Arkansas River or the Upper Mississippi ...needless to say it depends on weather, cloud cover, etc. I'd go for a 'mud' colored light to mid-brown and with washes of a greenish light grey followed by a fairly dark blue wash.
No matter the color, the massive size of the Mississippi River is a beautiful sight to see.
Muddy Sip’is a variegated colorway of a steel gray, dark green and muddy brown

Care of your hand knit garments
Please hand wash cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. Even though this yarn does contain superwash merino, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. We use colorfast acid dyes for dying our yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. There may be a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This does sometimes happen for speckled yarn and stubborn colors that are prone to bleed. For the first couple of washes, hand wash separately to be sure that no further bleeding.
There are no dye lots. We always try to sell from same dye lots but if not sure, we recommend blending the skeins as you work. Color saturation can differ from different dyelots.
